Lecture & Exhibition on Calligraphy

Calligraphy is considered as the most abstract and sublime form of writing in Vietnam and other East Asian Cultures. By the use of brush, ink, and paper, the calligrapher gives life to words. Traditionally, calligraphy, poetry, and painting make up the three sublime arts. Adapting the highly disciplined calligraphy art form to modern Vietnamese writing, artist Vu Hoi’s work reached a new height. Painting, poetry, and calligraphy made up the trinity and gracefully manifested and embodied in each and every of artist Vu Hoi’s medium of _expression.
